Before the terrorist assaults on the US embassy in Cairo, Egypt and the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya on 9-11-12, US Ambassador to the UN Susan Rice tweeted the following:
Today we pledge to never condone terrorism; never make excuses for it; never keep company with those who sow hatred; and never forget.
— Susan Rice (@AmbassadorRice) September 11, 2012
Yet five days later, Rice would do exactly that. She would blame a deadly terrorist attack on a movie in front of the entire world.
She cannot say that she was not warned. On 9-10-12, our own Ray Ibrahim picked up the following jihadist threat in the Egyptian media, to the US embassy in Cairo.
Jihadi groups in Egypt, including Islamic Jihad, the Sunni Group, and Al Gamaa Al Islamiyya have issued a statement threatening to burn the U.S. Embassy in Cairo to the ground.
According to El Fagr, they are calling for the immediate release of the Islamic jihadis who are imprisonment and in detention centers in the U.S. including Guantanamo Bay: “The group, which consists of many members from al-Qaeda, called [especially] for the quick release of the jihadi [mujahid] sheikh, Omar Abdul Rahman [the “Blind Sheikh”], whom they described as a scholar and jihadi who sacrificed his life for the Egyptian Umma, who was ignored by the Mubarak regime, and [President] Morsi is refusing to intervene on his behalf and release him, despite promising that he would. The Islamic Group has threatened to burn the U.S. Embassy in Cairo with those in it, and taking hostage those who remain [alive], unless the Blind Sheikh is immediately released.”
That warning emerged in the Egyptian media on 9-8-12. If we had it, the Obama administration had it.
Yet they chose to go with Operation Infinite Spin instead of acknowledging that America had suffered another terrorist attack on our soil.
